The Prodigi arrived this morning and all is well with no damages and it took only a few minutes to unpack and set up.
The initial wizard is really very worthwhile and makes the unit usable almost immediately.
I love the reader aspect so much and can now access my bank statements and letters which I have had trouble doing with my Sense View due to eye fatigue and the lack of resolution it has plus movement makes
I am so enthusiastic about this unit I am going back to printed books instead of audio books,well for a try out but it may be a bit tedious to do.
Right now, I could not be happier with my unit and trust me when I say this is giving me a freedom to deal with text I had given up on.
I have yet to take the tablet out into shopping and look forward to being able to sort out infuriating things like spice bottles, pasta types and even margarine.
I think this is the best investment I have made in myself besides 6 eye surgeries and 2 laser treatments that mean I can still use Prodigi and do so with clarity.
I am sure sighted people underestimate the critical importance of clear text and the Diamond Text is a superb feature that allows me to cope with text again.
If you need a video testimonial of my new found joy let me know and I will produce something for you.
Thanks for your help and advice though I rather suspect I was on the right path in the first place when I discovered Prodigi.
Hope you get what this means to me and my appreciation for the designers and engineers - developers in making a superb low vision product that actually does what it says on the tin.
I love my Victor Reader Stream, I think that it is a given for all of us fortunate enough to have one. I use it for all the usual stuff talking books, music dvs movies and text documents etc. It does help me stay organized and always handy for a note. This brings me to the most cherished success stories I have thus far using the Victor Reader Stream.
Just, wow! I've upgraded to firmware version 4.3 and I'm very impressed! HumanWare just keeps getting better and better!
I have been using a HumanWare Trekker Breeze since August 2010 and it's the best aid I have along with my cane. I think of my Breeze as a friend and a helper so I would really like to let people know what a huge difference the Breeze can make to their independence and freedom.
I use my BrailleNote constantly. I love for the first time in my life to be able to read my own e-mail and to send out e-mail. I gave up teaching after only 48 short years. I then started following my interest in poetry. I started writing poems about many subjects.
The result being that I published my book called DIE DAILY: Dream, Improve, Enjoy. The whole entire book was written with my wonderful BrailleNote. The book is exactly 200 pages long in print, and about 375 pages in braille.
For over 25 years, HumanWare's inspirational vision has resulted in a range of highly intuitive and intelligent solutions that empower people who are blind or with low vision by giving them the independence to participate effectively within a sighted world.
